ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia April Haney and Leah Merrell earned three more All-American honors Thursday for Eastern Oregon University at the NAIA National Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

Haney was second and Merrell third in the hammer throw, and Haney added a fourth-place showing in the shot put.

Haney went 167 feet, 7 inches in the hammer to Merrell's 166-11. Sarah Roberts of Azusa Pacific (Calif.) won the event at 169-2.

Haney's top shot put was 43-4 1/2 with the winning throw going to Tanya Thomas of McKendree (Ill.) at 47-8 1/2.

Haney has earned 14 All-American honors in indoor and outdoor track and field in her four-year college career. Merrell, a junior, is now a nine-time All-American.

In Thursday's preliminaries, junior Danielle Spiekermeier had the third-fastest time in the women's 1,500 and qualified for Saturday afternoon's final. Her time of 4:41.63 was her season-best.

The men's 4x800 relay team finished second in its heat and will race in tonight's finals. The team of Ian Schroeder, Pat Egelus, Ben Terry and Dave Terry ran in 7:43.09, two seconds faster than their previous best.

The women's 4x800 relay team did not make the finals, finishing sixth in its heat. Jill Heinz, Carri Jones, Kelsi Jones and Spiekermeier were ranked 20th going into the race but finished 17th overall in 9:37.12.

After four events through Thursday, the Mountaineer women were in second place with 19 points, but only Spiekermeier and Haney have events remaining. Spiekermeier will run in the 1,500 final Saturday and Haney concludes her Eastern career tonight in the discus.
